In this correspondence, we propose a novel method to extract illumination insensitive features for face recognition under varying lighting called the Gradientfaces. Theoretical analysis shows Gradientfaces is an illumination insensitive measure, and robust to different illumination, including uncontrolled, natural lighting. In addition, Gradientfaces is(More)
Linear discriminant analysis (LDA) is well known as a powerful tool for discriminant analysis. In the case of a small training data set, however, it cannot directly be applied to high-dimensional data. This case is the so-called small-sample-size or undersampled problem. In this paper, we propose an exponential discriminant analysis (EDA) technique to(More)
This paper introduces a new computational visual-attention model for static and dynamic saliency maps. First, we use the Earth Mover's Distance (EMD) to measure the center-surround difference in the receptive field, instead of using the Difference-of-Gaussian filter that is widely used in many previous visual-attention models. Second, we propose to take two(More)
